Trash the Dress

You spent hours, days, even months finding the perfect wedding dress. You looked through magazines and asks friends and family for opinions. You made sure that the dress fit you like a glove. Now that the big day is over, what do you do? TRASH IT!

Trash the Dress sessions aren't for everyone. If you are the kind of person who wants to preserve your dress for future generations, or donate your dress, (which we also think is a wonderful idea!) this is not for you. If you don't like to get down and dirty, then do not proceed. But for those who want to get a little creative and out of the ordinary, this one is for you.

Sessions usually will take place outdoors on the beach, on city streets, on a farm, or anywhere else you can get dirty!

Talk to your photographer about a possible Trash the Dress session. Just make sure to schedule it after the wedding! Below we have gathered some of our favorite Trash the Dress photos for some inspiration.

Are you planning on doing a Trash the Dress session? We would love to hear about it!

  1. I didn't "trash" my dress but instead repurposed it! It was a dress that was 15 yrs old when I wore it so it didn't have another wear in it. I made my train into a Christmas tree skirt and made hankerchiefs for each of my girls for when they get married. I also put the bodice in a shadow box and it is hanging on our wall. I have other pieces of it that had more detail framed and also sent a couple of pieces to my aunt (it was her dress originally)!
